This incredible video shows the terrifying moment a giant rogue wave slams into a group of 150 swimmers.
The monster hit people swimming at the Figure of Eight Pools at Burning Palms in the Royal National Park at around 2pm on Saturday, January 9, 2016.

At least three women were flown to hospital with serious injuries. 60 others were injured.
Rogue waves are relatively large and spontaneous surface waves that occur far out in open water, and are a threat even to large ships and ocean liners, according to Wikipedia.
Rogue waves present considerable danger as they are rare, unpredictable, may appear suddenly or without warning, and can impact with tremendous force.
